'File not found' error when doing svnrdump load

Was wondering if anyone could help with an error I'm running into when trying to merge two tags.
1) NewRepo is a copy of Trunk, created using: 'svn merge -r 1:HEAD [Trunk URL]' into an empty folder (I'm not sure why it was done this way)
Now, we're trying to merge Tag into NewRepo by doing 'svnrdump load [NewRepoURL] < Tag.svn_dump
However I'm getting errors about missing files.
svnrdump: E160013: File not found: transaction '164843-3o0f', path 'NewRepo/File.txt'
I had a look and File.txt seems to exist on 'Tag', but it didn't exist on 'Trunk' (so by extension doesn't exist on NewRepo). I thought that 'svnrdump load' would bring over all the revisions from Tag, so I expected it would bring across this new file too. Is that incorrect, or am I doing something wrong with the dump file?
